Browsing the Web

The Gnome web browser is mozilla-firefox. Galeon and epiphany are alternatives with more features. They are all based on mozilla to render the web pages.

Through Debian's aternatives system you can choose from a number of browsers to be the default for x-www-browser:

  $ wajig updatealts x-www-browser

  There are 4 alternatives which provide `x-www-browser'. 

    Selection    Alternative
        1        /usr/bin/epiphany
   +    2        /usr/bin/konqueror
        3        /usr/bin/mozilla
  *     4        /usr/bin/mozilla-firefox

  Press enter to keep the default[*], or type selection number:

From the Gnome Preferred Applications configuration window (gnome-default-applications-properties) you can choose Sensible Browser which runs the command sensible-browser, which attempts to do the right thing, depending on context and environment variables (including BROWSER), and will fall back to x-www-browser if required.
